Risking Hospitality in Your Church
The Big Risk and Bigger Reward of Hospitality
When cyclists “clip in” to the pedals, they take a risk. But they also commit—to finding a new way to achieve the balance and momentum necessary to propel them forward along their course.
Creating a culture of hospitality and growing your church involves a similar risk-taking process and learning new habits of balance and momentum. In Clip In, authors Jim Ozier and Fiona Haworth offer practical, growth-oriented coaching advice to help your church master the delicate interplay between balancing attention toward existing members and generating momentum through reaching new people.
